As we honor October as Veterans’ Voices Month in Minnesota, it is an opportunity to explore the role of civilian and military leadership with Brigadier General David D. Hamlar Jr. The United States has a huge, well-funded military, but at the highest levels, it is overseen by civilians. How effective has our country been in sustaining this balance between civilian and military views? What might each group have to learn from the other? Among the many divisions that plague our country today, is this one of them?
ABOUT THE SPOTLIGHT SERIES: The University of Minnesota Spotlight Series is a collaborative partnership between the University Honors Program, Institute for Advanced Study, and Northrop to present lectures, panel discussions, exhibits, and other events throughout the academic year around timely topics of interest. The six-part 2021-22 series will focus on patriotism, public service, and civic engagement. The moderator for all six events will be Kevin Lindsey, CEO of Minnesota Humanities Center. All events are Thursdays 3:30-5:00 pm and may be attended in Northrop’s Best Buy Theater or via Zoom webinar. Audience participation via Q&A sessions will follow each event.
